Across the Bridge by Kristin Neva

Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Across the Bridge by Kristin Neva with JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: Across the Bridge

Series: Copper Island, Book 3

Author: Kristin Neva

Publisher: The Christmas Tree House

Release Date: November 4, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Fiction from the Ragged Edge of Faith 

When Marcella Seppa meets her new tenant, widower Drew Smith, a spark ignites, but she won’t consider dating him. She doesn’t want his son, AJ, to experience the hurt she felt when her dad remarried shortly after her mom died. Her faith unraveled, and she threw herself into exercise and gardening instead of forming trusting relationships.

When Drew finds out he may not be AJ’s biological father, his first instinct is to leave Copper Island, but he wants to find out the truth. He seeks out Marcella’s support.

Is it possible their friendship could become more? But how would that affect AJ? Could love help make peace with the past?

Love weaves its way through the messiness of life on Copper Island. 

Across the Bridge is part of the Copper Island series, but it can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Across the Bridge will make you laugh and cry. Deep, meaningful themes are woven into a fast-paced storyline.

After Marcella Seppa lost her mother when she was fifteen years old, her father quickly remarried, and her stepmother pushed too hard to foster a relationship with Marcella. Well-meaning people used Christian clichés in an attempt to comfort her, but it resulted in Marcella having a faith crisis. Is love worth the risk of loss, and how can you hold on to faith when questioning the idea of a puppet-master God?

Drew Smith moves to the small town of Quincy so that his in-laws can help raise his son, and he plugs into a local church where the leader of a boys group — and his deceased wife’s high school boyfriend — looks strikingly like his son. Drew fears losing part of his son’s heart to a man who even he admires for his height, charm, and cool job as a State Trooper. What does it mean to be a father, and what is the balance between protecting and preparing your child?

Across the Bridge also contains a theme dealing with ALS, a terminal disease that requires a team of caregivers. Readers who’ve met Grandma Lou in Snow Country will want to be with her again.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

This is a really interesting book, because there is so much going on in the story. I didn’t read the first two books in this series, but author Kristin Neva does an amazing job of telling enough of the characters and the issues they are dealing with, I was able to understand and comprehend what was going on. The characters seemed to pop out at me and I loved how each developed throughout the story, especially Marcella and her walk with the Lord. It was neat that her neighbor gave her a gift, that she later found out was a Bible. And AJ had my heart from the beginning. And the storyline with what this child would have to deal with was heartbreaking. But then it turns ok to be a not so bad thing. And the other major thing is sweet Louise as she continues her battle with ALS. And how her caregivers and friends and family come together to care for her. Not reading the first two books in this series, I missed out on the first part of Louise’s life, but again, the author helps us understand what is going on.

This story is full of action, and for this reason, you need to read the book to find out what happens. I dont go into detail because that would ruin the book for you. This is my first book from this author and I am very impressed. I love all of the details with each subject she deals with, and its clear she has well researched her topics before she writes this book. I highly recommend Across the Bridge by Kristen Neva

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kristin Neva grew up in an old farmhouse on Copper Island in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula where the hard-working, rugged residents persevere through harsh winter weather, sustained by friendship and family, surrounded by natural beauty. As an adult, she lived in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas for seventeen years before returning to the her hometown with her husband and two children.

Kristin’s first book, Heavy, co-authored with her husband, Todd, journeys through the first year after Todd’s ALS diagnosis as the Nevas struggle to find meaning, hold on to faith, and discover joy in the midst of pain.

It is this life experience that brings authenticity to Kristin’s fictional works as she explores themes of love, loss, and faith on Copper Island. Her quirky characters are endearing and wholesome. But they are also full of healthy grit, humor, flaws, and appetites.
